Yep, that's right.
I started a Human Paladin the other day.
I feel so dirty.
Okay, I'm trying several classes, and he's one of them, but right now he's the one with the heirloom weapon. Of course, since it's a 2H axe, he can't use it yet. Figures.
Maybe it's because I'm so used to the "us against the world" and "nobody loves us so we all have to band together" aspect of the Horde, but I'm having real problems relating to a Human Alliance character. I can't bring myself to appreciate the "oh, look at the poor humans, how they've lost so much" and "ooo, those MEANIE Horde people running around, they're all just vermin" that the Human NPCs radiate.
And you don't think that the Forsaken had it bad, losing their lives to the Scourge? Or the Blood Elves, getting facerolled by Arthas and then accused of being traitors when they were left to their own devices? Or the Tauren, who were getting beat up on by the centaurs?
Now, it's possible -likely, even- that the other Alliance races aren't that bad. Whenever I see a Draeneii around, Lorne Greene's voiceover from the 70's Battlestar Galactica pops into my head: "Fleeing from the Cylon tyranny, a rag tag fugitive fleet...." And don't get me started on the Gnomes. Way way WAY too much Polyanna in them.
What am I going to do? Oh, I'll keep putzing around with Alliance characters for the moment, as the lure of seeing the questing from an Alliance angle would be very interesting. Quint is less than 450 quests away from the Seeker, so the challenge of duplicating that feat from the Alliance side is tempting.
